 The history of Nordic walking

1930s – Super fit competitive cross country skiers in Finland started to use poles in their off season training when there was no snow – they soon realized that this was giving them a massive advantage and that the technique was a perfect training aid that kept their heart and lungs in top condition and ensured upper and lower body muscles remained in top shape.

Nordic Walking began to be used by more people as a recreational physical activity in its own right and enthusiasts realized that they were achieving a whole body workout that was fun and simple to incorporate into every day life.

1997 – 2000
The Finnish sports institute joined forces with other agencies and the ski pole manufacturer Exel plc to formalize the technique of the sport and to develop specific poles for Nordic walkers.

Research into the effects of this simple technique soon led to it being trialled as a health and rehabilitation technique – results were so impressive that it became a major tool in activity promotion and wellness programmes worldwide.

Nordic walking grew in popularity all over mainland Europe with millions of regular participants. In some European countries such as Holland, Austria and Germany, Nordic Walking rapidly became a mainstream activity with specific magazines dedicated to it as well as clothing, shoes and of course, poles.

2005 - Present
There are now nearly ten million regular Nordic Walkers all over the world and it is rapidly becoming a common sight in Europe, the USA, Australia and the UK. Nordic Walking has been featured repeatedly in the National press and fitness publications.


2009 - 2010
Nordic Walking is one of the fastest growing exercise activities in the UK.
